Hi everyone, the Stampman challenge is for Poppies If you take part you could send your make to the British Legion or the Stampman and it may be sold to raise some much needed funds, great cause.So I've done a CAS Poppy card.
The stamp is from the USA. Blockheads
Their Flower garden set and it's one of my favourite poppy stamps. Poppies are difficult because they are so wafer thin, capturing that quality is darn hard. I stamped on photocopy paper then onto red velum and the copy paper was best but I had to trim the edges of the design away because of the dark line. Painted with Twinkling H20's and distress crackle paint after. The sentiment is from The Stampman, Non Sequitur Love Letters
I thought it was reminiscent of old typewriter font and just fitted. I deliberately miss stamped to give it an old feel. Stamped in Versamark ink and mica powdered.
Have a great day, I'm off to have a go at the White on White challenge over at Less is More It's so moody and atmospheric here today, rumbling of thunder in the distance...oooeerrr! Blooming hot too :0)
